As a testament to the country's strategic position, our Subic Bay and Guam locations are vital to the country’s oil, gas and chemicals operations.

In Guam, we provide a range of services for the island's hotel and tourism, food services, real estate, shipping and logistics industries. We also provide services to military establishments and affiliated-industries and services, petroleum and fuel sectors, and many others.

We also continue to share in the development of the Philippines and its initiatives. For example, we are involved in the country’s fast-growing industries, one of which is business process outsourcing (BPO). Established in 2000, SGS Gulf Limited – Regional Operating Headquarters (ROHQ) – provides BPO services that includes Information Technology (IT) services and 24/7 operations support for the SGS network.

Expertise

SGS provides worldwide, independent services that make a difference in people’s lives.

Our international experts help you operate in more efficient and sustainable ways by streamlining processes, improving quality and productivity, reducing risk, verifying compliance and increasing speed to market. Our core service activities cover all industry sectors and touch the products and services that consumers around the world rely on every day.

AGRICULTURE AND FOOD

Agriculture and food are arguably the world’s most important industries. Consumers want assurance of safety and quality at every stage of the process. Our comprehensive range of services can help you:

We offer stand-alone or integrated solutions to assist organizations that are involved in agrochemicals, seed, bio fuels, fertilizers, farm machinery and supplies, financial and insurance industries, storage, processing facilities and logistical construction, preparation of fresh produce for market and prepared food products.

CHEMICAL

From pesticides and petrochemicals to perfumes and paints, chemicals and the products made from them are everywhere. That is why the chemicals industry is such big business, central to modern world economy. In its most fundamental form, we view the chemicals industry as converting raw materials such as oil, natural gas, air, water, metals and minerals into literally tens of thousands of finished products.

It goes without saying that the chemicals industry is also highly complex, filled with intricate equipment and sometimes difficult and dangerous logistics.

At SGS, we offer a comprehensive range of services to our partners in the industrial chemicals industry. As the world’s leading testing, certification, verification and inspection company, we have the knowledge, experience and global reach to assist you in meeting national and international standards. We can help train your staff so they are more motivated, productive and confident in their careers. And if you need extra staff for a particular project, we have a pool of people from experienced operatives to qualified scientists, on hand to assist you.

Some of our services, specifically, include chemical feedstock services and finished product services (such as agrochemicals, consumer chemicals, plastics and synthetic fibers, rubber and natural fibers, pharmaceuticals and industrial chemicals).

As well as working with you to test, inspect, verify and certify specific chemical products, we can help your business run more smoothly, profitably and effectively with asset integrity management services, LEAN optimization programs, project lifecycle services and technical support.

CONSTRUCTION

There are few industries more complex and competitive than the construction industry. Whether you are in the business of constructing buildings, infrastructure or both, you will appreciate that large-scale construction is a mixture of many smaller projects, which is a feat of multitasking in its own right.

PLANNING

Effective planning is an essential part of the ongoing project management process. The environmental impact of a job, its scheduling, budgeting, site safety, availability and delivery of quality materials, personnel, logistics, as well as inconvenience to the general public, compliance with local and national standards - these things and countless more all have to be considered.

LISTENING AND CREATING SOLUTIONS BASED ON PROVEN SERVICES

Understanding your business and project needs are paramount to SGS, for us to be able to determine how best to add value to your construction projects. Thanks to our long experience and wide-ranging knowledge of construction and associated engineering, we have a comprehensive range of services to provide complete solutions to your projects on time, on budget, safely and to meet your requirements. You can use our specialist services standalone or to augment your existing procedures. However, as you will know, it can often be more cost effective to subcontract certain services completely.

EARLY PROJECT LIFE CYCLE INVOLVEMENT

Right from the beginning of your project, we can help. SGS can conduct construction feasibility and risk assessment and management studies. Use our geotechnical services and environment services before construction starts.

ARE YOU SURE ABOUT WHAT MATERIALS YOU ARE USING?

We also have a range of services dedicated just to materials: chemical and physical testing of the durability of materials and materials certification. For example, if a product is labeled as meeting a certain standard, how can you be sure that it truly does? We can tell you.

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR ASSETS ARE?

It does not stop there. Another suite of construction services relates to the equipment, tools and machinery you use on site. We use the AHEAD asset management system to help you keep track of machines and other assets. Plus if you are buying or selling machinery, we can certify new and used products – from jackhammers to dumpers.

GLOBAL PROCUREMENT NEEDS GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT

You can trust SGS for supply chain management services to check suppliers and materials at source.

FULL PROJECT LIFE CYCLE SUPPORT

SGS can even handle all your facilities management, waste management and inspection requirements – right up to certifiable energy audits – once your building or infrastructure is complete.

CONSUMER GOODS AND RETAIL

With a reputation for excellence in inspection, testing, certification and verification, we can also offer you consultancy and cross-business services to improve sustainability across your organization and supply chain.

Consumer goods really are part of everyone’s daily life. Customers expect to buy products that are healthy and safe. Our customized testing, inspection, audit, certification and consultancy services, delivered through our local, accredited laboratories and certification units, ensure you understand the standards applicable to your products and comply with mandatory requirements. More importantly, we can help you gain a competitive edge and develop products, processes and supply chains that deliver consumer goods that really are as good as you say they are.

Just for example, we carry out coal analyses, cargo and vessel inspection, visual inspection, stockpile inventory measurement, equipment inspection services, traditional and mechanical sampling as well as supplying a range of onsite and outsourced laboratory facilities to the coal sector.

THE RENEWABLE ENERGY INDUSTRY

Renewable energy is one of the world’s hottest topics. It comprises alternative energy and sustainable energy companies, including those involved in hydroelectric power, wind power, solar power generation, and the manufacture, distribution and sale of alternative fuels.

All of our energy-related services can be used on a standalone basis or to augment your existing working processes and methodologies.

ENVIRONMENT

The environment is at the top of the agenda for governments, civil society and citizens, and is likely to remain so for some time. Its importance in business and purchase decision-making, as well as in legislation, standards and regulations is increasing all the time.

As a result, no business can afford to take the environment for granted. Whatever your industry or area of activity, you need to minimize your impact on the environment and protect it as much as possible.

As the world’s leading provider of environment services, we offer testing, sampling, inspection, certification, verification and a comprehensive range of specialist solutions to help you minimize your environmental impact.

With a continually expanding network of laboratories in close to 140 countries all around the world, we are your ideal partners. Our broad global experience means we offer extensive knowledge on local, national and international standards to help your business comply and excel in the most innovative way possible.

We can help you with every aspect of your environmental responsibilities, including:

HEALTH AND SAFETY

Occupational health and safety is a major consideration for successful businesses – the welfare and safety of your staff must be of paramount importance because, as the adage states, people are your most important asset. Plus, apart from looking after your own personnel directly, a good set of QHSE policies will also have a secondary effect: you may also protect co-workers, family members, employers, customers, suppliers, nearby communities, and other members of the public who are impacted by your workplace environment.

You will undoubtedly already have health and safety policies and procedures in place. But can you be sure that you are adhering to best practice? Are you complying with local, national and even international regulations? And if you think you are, can you prove it?

At SGS, we have solutions and answers. We can advise and train on a comprehensive range of quality, health, safety and environment issues. As the world’s leading inspection, certification, testing and verification company, we are fully familiar with local legislation – and international standards. Standards such as ISO 31000 and REACH. We can help you with occupational or industrial hygiene, your working environment with regard to air quality, dust, noise and vibration, technical due diligence and hazardous substances. And we are experts at environmental audits and economic and social sustainability.

INDUSTRIAL MANUFACTURING

Industrial manufacturing covers a wealth of business areas from pharmaceuticals to farm machinery, aerospace to automotive and everything in between. Manufacturing is invariably complex, requires tremendous attention to standards and regulations, needs compliance with quality, health and safety legislation and, often, international regulations.

At SGS, we have a comprehensive suite of services to help manufacturing processes run smoothly – whether you are fabricating components, or finished products to be sold directly to consumers. As the world’s leading testing, certification, verification and inspection company, we understand the business of manufacturing, from process control to logistics.

For example, when you ship goods, you want them to arrive at their destination in the same condition as when they left. If something has gone wrong, what was it? Theft? Accidental damage? Our services can help prevent and diagnose such problems.

Our transportation services encompass marine services such as cargo and vessel services, plant and terminal operations (PTO), import control services and international customs data exchange.
